UNIT 6 NEWS (article first published : 2001-10-3)

Two very different productions - Swoon and The Rope - are to run at Unit 6 at Springfield Park this month.

From October 11 to 21, de Wet Wraight and Dawn Selby will perform their highly successful Swoon which looks at the songs and personalities of top figures in showbiz. Recently seen at the Playhouse Cellar, Swoon offers clever interpretations of some of the world's sexiest singing super stars such as Tina Turner, Mick Jagger, The Village People, Elvis, Britney Spears and Cher. Songs featured in the show are Believe, She's The One, Barcelona, She Bangs, Suspicious Minds, Sweet Caroline, etc. Tickets R40.

Offering a completely different mood will be The Rope which runs from October 24 to 27.

Michelle Driman plays Catherine Doulle, a convicted murderess in her last hours on Death Row. Before she takes those last fatal 12 steps to execution, she must endure her last meal, manipulate her last conversation and deny her last saviour. This powerful work was masterminded by Dennis Rubin, published poet and director of the Durban Theatre Academy who holds the 1996 South African Scriptwriters' Award for One Margherita, Please. Tickets R30.

Running from October 29 to November 4 is a show that promises to be the closest thing to going to a real Eagles concert. Producer Stuart Mey has gathered the cream of Durban's musicians to perform the greatest Eagles' hits.

The line-up includes Dawn Selby (musical director) on keyboards, Glen Turrel on bass and Ian Webster on drums and percussion. An impressive four-man guitar section (electric, acoustic and mandolin) includes Andrew Turrel, Gerald Knott, Nux Schwartz and Riaan Jacobs. The huge popularity of the music of the Eagles is largely due to the very intricate guitar lines and close vocal harmonies. All songs are performed live and include hits such as Hotel California, Take It Easy, Desperado, Life In The Fast Lane and Tequila Sunrise, to name a few. Tickets R45.

Book at Unit 6 or Rythmic Beat in Umgeni Road. All productions offer an optional meal at an extra R35 per person. To book contact Peter Court or De Wet Wraight on (031) 579-1230. Directions to the venue faxed or email-ed on request.
